Man In Fair Condition After Accident In Pitt County

A bizarre accident Friday morning, sent one man to the hospital.

It happened just after 10:30 on Greenville Boulevard Extension and Sherman Drive, near the Grande Movie Theatre.

Officers say 64 year old John Dixon was traveling west in his BMW when he tried to change lanes and lost control.

Witnesses say Dixon somehow swerved from the far left lane to the right lane, before hitting a curb, flipping several times and crashing into a barbed wire fence.

Police say Dixon was alert but had a head injury and was taken to Pitt County Memorial Hospital where he is listed in fair condition.

He was charged with careless and wreckless driving.
